27 weeks...





Please excuse the no makeup/we're on vacation look!


Here we are at 27 weeks!!!  With this week we saw our second trimester come to a close!  Can you believe it?

Here's what BabyCenter has to say:

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.

27 week highlights:
  • Cravings-still nothing specific--just able to clean my plate these days...and eat my fair share of Christmas goodies.  So not fair that I have to go to the doctor to get weighed every couple of weeks during this full of food season!
  • Belly Button-The Robert report says holding steady at 96% outie
  • Sleep-slept amazingly well during this week (could it have been the ocean that was right outside our window?)
  • Symptoms-nothing new-energy level isn't the greatest and I've surrendered trying to be superwoman.  I know.  It was hard to let that one go.
  • Movement-love my Little Hoot and this time we get together.  Robert actually got to see my stomach move during this week--such a sweet moment.
  • Other 27 week highlights:
    • Our 2nd trimester came to a close--on the final stretch now!
    • Read an email that talked about symptoms you might be feeling due to the baby moving into its final position getting ready for labor---ALREADY?????
  • Best Moment of the Week:  We spent most of the week at the beach celebrating our 3rd anniversary and our "Babymoon" (official last vacation of being a family of two).  I loved spending time out on the porch overlooking the ocean, reading the Word and feeling Little Hoot kick.  The quality time with the hubs was much needed, but we both agreed that we are so ready to be a family of three!
